Interview with Kaz
I was busy raising a child and producing television when I reached midlife. I didn’t have time to ponder what midlife was. I had no obstacles at that time. It was only when I stopped dying my hair that I faced ageism and a lot of that was from women my age.
I’m not sure you have enough space for me to list all the positives of midlife.
I’m challenged with osteoarthritis because of my career as a former dancer, stunt person, professional water skier and circus artist.
I keep my muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons as supple as possible by eating the right foods and the appropriate exercise, sleep, meditation, Qigong, a good attitude and a fantastic son and husband.
I have female friends I have known for 43 years, and some for just 2 years and everything in between. I have very unconditionally loving friends. We connect as much as possible. Life would not be the same without them.
I have a kind, generous, compassionate, loving, caring and challenging husband and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Being at this stage of life is really fulfilling. Not everyone has the luxury.
Fears? What are those? Ok, yes, I’ve got them but never for long.
Style? I wear what I like. I have always marched to the beat of my own wardrobe drum. Some days I’m in an Indian kurta, and some I’m in a black t- shirt, black jeans and a black pin-striped jacket with patent leather loafers.
The most important thing for me: to keep a smile on my face and in my heart. Too many people have misplaced theirs and I’m happy to share!
